DLTs have seen signifiant innovation and a wide range of application, from streamlining cross-company business processes and tokenizing assets to supporting self-sovereign identity. But increasing protocol heterogeneity and network specialization is driving the emergence of data and value silos, impeding the vision of a decentralized Internet. Addressing this issue requires seamless interoperation between diverse DLT networks while preserving the properties of decentralization beyond the boundaries of a single network. In this talk, Vinayaka will analyze interoperability and its technical and governance challenges, survey prominent efforts and emerging patterns in this area, and present a point of view on the salient design aspects of blockchain interoperability stemming from his experience of enabling interoperability between networks built on multiple different blockchain protocols.
